The GIANT Company provides additional COVID-19 support


To help provide assistance for the youngest members of the community during the COVID-19 pandemic, The GIANT Company made a donation of $250,000 to support COVID-19 mitigation efforts. The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Penn State Children’s Hospital, The Janet Weis Children’s Hospital at Geisinger, Children’s National Medical Center, and Johns Hopkins Children’s Center will each receive $50,000.

“While there has been a great focus on the effects COVID-19 has on our older population, children fighting cancer or other serious medical conditions with weakened immune systems may need further specialty care,” said Nicholas Bertram, president, The GIANT Company. “The GIANT Company has long supported our local children’s hospitals and we are proud to continue doing what we can to assist in providing quality care to those children and support for the dedicated medical staff on the front lines of this pandemic.”

GIANT’s gift allows Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to immediately apply funding to support the hospital’s COVID-19 response team.  We are extremely grateful to have GIANT as a trusted partner.
